Human Population. (Student Resource Book IV in the Investigating Your Environemnt Program).
Biological Sciences Curriculum Study, Boulder, CO.
These resource papers encourage the student to discover for himself the contributions to a problem made through original literature. Since some of the papers are controversial or contradict one another, the student will need to evaluate them to determine his position. It is hoped that these papers will foster an appreciation of the work of the scientists involved. The first three articles illustrate the problems in slowing population growth. The next four articles provide some of the terms and techniques used to study populations. The following article claims that technology alone cannot solve the problems created by overpopulation. The next article summarizes most of the proposals made to limit population, while another explores solutions designed to limit personal freedom as little as possible. Various minority viewpoints are represented in the next three papers. The following two analyze data from surveys regarding people's attitudes about population. The concluding paper summarizes the final report of the U.S. Commission on Population Growth and the American Future. (LS)
